A New Name for Ventura County's Favorite Charity Event – The Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival is On Its Way Apr 16, 2014 06:10PM

Camarillo, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

In recognition of the large number of specialty brews represented at the Festival each year and the growing popularity of such ales around the country, the 21-year-old Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival dons a new name this year and features a new competition to kick it off. This year the Festival, which will be held on June 1st, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the glorious California State University Channel Islands campus, will hold its first ever ' Best in Fest ' beer competition for its independent, craft, and microbrew exhibitors. The competition will be judged a month ahead of time and the winning specialty brew will be recognized and celebrated at the Festival.

"Since the number of Festival exhibitors featuring specialty beers has grown steadily over the past few years and people's interest in beer is reaching toward a level equal to connoisseurs of fine wine, it was a logical step to add a competition just for the brews," shares Kristin Palos, Casa Pacifica's Events Specialist, "We are excited to launch this new event!"

In addition, the Angels are excited to welcome back their generous Festival Hosts, the Zarley and Van Huisen families, and announce a new Host Sponsor joining them this year, Union Bank! The Wine, Food & Brew Festival will once again offer its unbeatable array of exhibitors offering delicious food samples from fabulous restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and specialty shops, and the palette-pleasing tastes of fine wines, feisty brews, and specialty beverages from throughout California. The Silent Auction, arranged in themed sections, will tempt Festival-goers with must-have, self-indulgent, one-of-a-kind, and fun-focused items and activities that include a week-long getaway to a beautiful and serene location, a relaxing trip to a luxurious spa, and a night out at the new 'place-to-be' restaurant – along with many more unique offerings! All proceeds from the Festival will benefit the vital programs and services Casa Pacifica provides to the community's most vulnerable children and their families.

The 4th Annual Yummies Culinary Competition will name the top chef creations among Festival exhibitors in an action-packed culinary showdown and a celebrity emcee and judges will be on hand to decide the winners in both Sweet and Savory categories. The main stage will feature upbeat entertainment throughout the day as guests wine and dine their way around the grounds, and a dance floor will beckon to those who feel the beat. Bruce Barrios will be on hand to emcee the festivities. The exclusive V.I.P. Lounge presented by Wells Fargo will feature its own music and dance floor, along with special food, wine, and brew offerings.

The Wine, Food & Brew Festival is still welcoming sponsors, so it's not too late to sign up and connect your name or business with this "Can't Miss" event by taking advantage of some great sponsorship opportunities!

Rooster Energy Ltd. Announces Filing of Amended Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for Third Quarter 2013 Apr 16, 2014 06:02PM

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/14 -- ROOSTER ENERGY LTD. (the "Company") (www.roosterenergyltd.com) (TSX VENTURE: COQ) announces that it has filed Amended Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 and corresponding Amended Management's Discussion and Analysis (the "Q3 Filings"). The Q3 filings have been amended to include disclosure of certain events subsequent to September 30, 2013, including that in connection with the previously announced proposed acquisition by the Company of Morrison Well Services, LLC and Cochon Properties, LLC, the Company and the holders of its outstanding senior secured notes (the "Noteholders") acknowledged that the Company was in default of the collateral coverage ratio under the senior secured notes and the Noteholders agreed to forbear from exercising certain rights and remedies. The previously filed information in respect of such September 30, 2013 filings is unchanged other than the addition of the subsequent event disclosure.

The Company's deficiency in satisfying the collateral coverage ratio was primarily the result of over expenditures in the second and third quarters of 2013 related to the drilling and completion of the High Island A-494 #B-4 well. The Company intends to move forward with a plan to develop the potential oil and gas reserves identified in the well and is engaged in discussions for a new credit facility that will allow the Company to resolve its working capital deficit, satisfy its obligations to the Noteholders and continue the Company's growth to maximize shareholder value. The Company will also continue to examine other corporate strategies, including asset divestitures and additional debt or equity financings, in order to finance its ongoing capital expenditure program and settle its long-term liabilities as they fall due.


Rooster, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, is an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company based in Houston, Texas, that is focused on the development of natural resources in the shallow waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. At September 30, 2013, our primary assets consist of interests in 20 producing oil and/or natural gas wells and interest in 16 federal leases or blocks. Rooster is the operator of the majority of its properties and daily oil and gas production.

"Generation Hear" Video Now Live On Etymotic.com Apr 16, 2014 06:03PM

Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

Etymotic Research, an innovator in hearing wellness solutions, today announced the release of its Generation Hear educational video, now available for viewing on etymotic.com. The lively and informative program contains essential information about hearing health specifically for music educators and their students. The 15-minute video is an update of a similar presentation called Hear for a Lifetime, which was distributed on DVD by Etymotic four years ago.

"Schools protect students with padding and helmets to prevent sports injuries and they require the use of goggles to protect students' eyes in chemistry labs and in wood and metal shops. In the same way, every student musician should be equipped with hearing protection to prevent cumulative and irreversible hearing loss when exposed to loud music in band rooms and while marching. And, because they spend so much of their day exposed to loud music, music educators can be even more at risk than their students," said Gail Gudmundsen, AuD, audiologist and Managing Director of Sales and Marketing at Etymotic.

Generation Hear makes the case that it is critically important for musicians and educators to wear hearing protection while making music, especially indoors. The video contains interviews with musicians, music educators and audiologists. It also illustrates the inner workings of the human ear, how we hear, and how our hearing can become damaged when exposed to loud sounds. Etymotic's Adopt-A-Band program, detailed on its website, makes protecting large numbers of students with ETY•Plugs® high-fidelity earplugs easy and affordable. There are approximately 300 bands enrolled in Adopt-A-Band, with more joining every month as increased awareness of music-induced hearing loss reaches those most at risk.

In addition to the online video, DVDs are available to current and new members of the Adopt-A-Band Program.

About Etymotic
Etymotic is a research, development and manufacturing company that designs high-fidelity personal audio products and hearing wellness solutions to assess enhance and protect hearing. For over 30 years, innovation and education have been central to Etymotic's mission. Etymotic received the prestigious Safe-in-Sound Award for Innovation in Hearing Loss Prevention by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Hearing Conservation Association.
